Bobby Armani Reid (born 2 February 1993) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Cardiff City.

Early and personal life[edit]

Reid was born in Bristol, England, and is of Jamaican descent.[5] Reid is cousin to Anthony McNamee.[6][dead link] He is also known as 'Bobby De Cordova Reid'.[7] 'De Cordova' is his mother's name and Reid added it because he "wanted to represent her after the hard work she’s done for me".[8]

Club career[edit]

Bristol City[edit]

After playing for their youth team, Reid was offered a professional contract by Bristol City on 4 April 2011,[9] and was called up to the first team for the last game of the 2010–11 season,[10] where he made his senior debut.[11] In November 2011 Reid signed on loan for Cheltenham Town until the end of the year.[12] On 25 March 2013, Reid signed on loan for Oldham Athletic until the end of the 2012–13 season.[13]

He signed a one-month loan deal with Plymouth Argyle in September 2014.[14] The loan deal was then extended for a second month,[15][16] before he was recalled early following injury problems back at Bristol City.[17] After making one appearance for his parent club, he returned on loan to Plymouth later that month.[18] He returned to Plymouth for a third loan spell in January 2015.[19] Bobby Reid played 27 times in the Football League Championship the following season, scoring 2 goals as City finished 18th,[20] avoiding relegation straight back to Football League One.[21]

Cardiff City[edit]

On 28 June 2018, Reid signed for Premier League newcomers, Cardiff City, on a 4-year deal for a reported fee of £10 million.[22] He described the 2017–18 season as 'crazy'.[23] He made his debut for the club on the opening day of the 2018–19 season during a 2–0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth.[24]
